Hi,
I am going through the list of events for a datagrid and a data object trying to figure out which one is the best one to return a string value for a LastName column. I want the user the ability to click on a row, return the LastName  so the user can execute a search. Thank you.

'*************************************

dbgGrid.col=6 'whatever column you want
lastname=dbgrid.text

How does your code snippet definitively answer diek nf's question?

<----- Code Begin ----->
Option Explicit
Private m_strSearch as String

Private Sub Command1_Click()

  If Len(m_strSeach) > 0 _
  Then
    Call SearchRoutine (m_strSearch)
  End If

End Sub

Private Sub DataGrid1_RowColChange(LastRow As Variant, ByVal LastCol As Integer)

  If DataGrid1.Col = LastNameColNumber _
  Then
    m_strSearch = DataGrid1.Text
  End If

End Sub

<----- Code End ----->

Voodoo,
I concur with wsh2 in part, this topic needs a little more than 3-4 lines. Don't get pissed because I rejected your answer, please expand a little more. Please note I am working so it can take a day for me to completely test everyones input.

you could try somthing like this which ive used to somthing similar on my own projects


Private Sub DataGrid1_RowColChange(LastRow As Variant, ByVal LastCol As Integer)
     Dim y As Integer

    y = DataGrid1.Row
    If y = -1 Then Exit Sub
   
    DataGrid1.RowBookmark (y)
   
    ProductIDnumber = DataGrid1.Columns(0)
    Name = DataGrid1.Columns(3)

End Sub

Good Luck

Your datagrid is bound to the ADO data control right? This data control reflects user actions in the grid. If you need to know what lastname is in the current row of the datagrid just reference the field in the data control...

searchstring = ADODC1.recordset!lastname

If the above proves null it puts quite the wrench in my program. I have tried using an If conditon, to test if null then... do not continue
 else
searchstring = dat_Client.recordset!lastname
------------------------
This is driving me nuts. I am thinking it is a logic problem but.... I would appreciate any help

if isnull(ADODC1.recordset!lastname ) then
    exit sub
else
    searchstring = ADODC1.recordset!lastname
end if



or.....

if ADODC1.recordset.eof then
    exit sub
else
    searchstring = ADODC1.recordset!lastname
end if

good luck

the eof is if there is no records in the recordset...

you should test test for eof then a null in the field when using recordsets.

this should cover common problems when retriving data from recordsets.

<---------------------------->

if not ADODC1.recordset.eof then
   if not isnull(ADODC1.recordset!lastname ) then
      Searchstring =ADODC1.recordset!lastname
   else
      msgbox("No Value in Last Name")
   end if      
else
   msgbox("No Records")
end if

good luck
